Boston Heart Diagnostics

Boston Heart Cholesterol Balance®

$34.00 per Test Kit

Boston Heart’s exclusive Cholesterol Balance test directly measures the major production markers (lathosterol and desmosterol) and absorption markers (beta-sitosterol, campesterol and cholestanol) for circulating plasma cholesterol. The levels of these markers are indicators of LDL-C lowering response to treatments (e.g., statins or ezetimibe). This information enables healthcare providers to prescribe the most effective treatment strategy to lower LDL-C and help patients achieve their LDL-C goal.
